Summary

The Ultimate Frustration

The Good

A solid physics engine has been a staple of Reflections Interactive's games. Replays are fun to watch since this game is replay-centric. Unfortunately, that's all I saw as a plus in this title.

The Bad

The core gameplay involves driving and performing stunts exactly as planned. Isn't this against the nature of interactive gameplay? I wasn't expecting this going in and still finished the game... with a terribly bad aftertaste.

In addition to the linear gameplay, the load times are painful. Every time I had to restart a level I had to reload it as well, which took at least twenty to thirty seconds each time.

The Bottom Line

People either love or hate this game, and I'm afraid I feel the latter. This is one of the most frustrating games I have ever played.
